Sublimation is only possible on polyester, poly blend, and treated materials.
It is the easiest way to get full color edge to edge printed items.
We use special printers to print the art, then heat
and pressure to dye items or material directly. The result is full color dyed items with
edge to edge printing that will not wash out or fade. This process allows for low minimums
and low setup costs. It also gives us the ability to print preproduction samples
and items for PMS color matching.

All Sublimated Products Include Full Sublimation
Sublimation Set-Up Charge Per Artwork: $60.00(v)

Artwork Fees- fees for separations, typesetting, touch up, minor copy change and redraw are all billed at $45(v) per hour in 15 minute increments.

Artwork Requirements- We accept PSD, EPS, and AI files. Vector is best to avoid pixilation. Higher resolution is always better, we suggest 300 DPI or better. To avoid unreadable text, 2 point minimum line is required.

Paper Proofs- The first paper proof is included in the cost of setup for every order. Every time a proof is sent back to the art department for changes there is a $12.50(v) fee. Ink Colors- No charge for color matching, or PMS match. Exact color match is not guaranteed; a pre-production sample is required when color matching is critical.
